Abstract

Background: Little is known about intimate partner violence (IPV) and depression among low income, urban African American and Hispanic adolescent females.


Method: Interviews with 102 urban African American and Hispanic adolescent females examined physical abuse, emotional/verbal abuse, and threats, and their unique and combined associations with depression.


Results: One‐quarter of the sample experienced all three types of abuse. Non‐physical forms of IPV were significantly associated with depression.


Conclusions: Some urban adolescent females from lower income households experience high rates of IPV. Physical and non‐physical forms of IPV are important in understanding and responding to depression in this population.
